Make new friends at walking tennis sessions, which are held at Retford Tennis Club on Wednesday mornings.
The initiative, organised by the club and Get Out Get Active Bassetlaw, offers physical and mental benefits and the sessions are socially distanced and outside. Running every week on Wednesdays from 10.00am to 11.30am, sessions cost £6.00 each, which includes refreshments.
Walking tennis is suitable for people who are:
•Complete beginners
•People with long term health conditions
•Postnatal mums
•Retired people
•Recovering from long term injuries
There is no running or jumping in walking tennis, and a second bounce is allowed. Rackets are available to borrow and everything operates in a COVID-secure environment. Call 01777 709650 for more information or just go along and join in.
Bassetlaw Action Centre’s Staying Well Expert Patients Programme is a self-management course to help people living with long term conditions maintain their health and improve their quality of life through a self-management course, led by someone else with a long term health condition. The courses at present are done over Zoom, and the next course begins on 9th September. If you would like more information please contact Bassetlaw Action Centre on 01777 70965
